The Magnitude of Middle School
In 6th-8th grade, students are developing habits of mind and solidifying their attitudes toward school. Given that crucial reality, our Middle School fosters our students' love of learning as they build strong academic and social skills. Lessons are lively and engaging, built around critical thinking and discussion
, collaboration with peers, and projects that inspire active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.
